Temple Site

No site location has been officially announced for the Lone Mountain Nevada Temple, but local members and media outlets report that the temple will be built on Church-owned property northeast of Alexander Road and Grand Canyon Drive in the Lone Mountain neighborhood of Las Vegas. Buyers who purchase lots in The Estates at Lone Mountain development are provided a list of disclosures regarding the property. They acknowledge that about 10 acres will be used for the construction of a multi-story religious building of approximately 40,000 square feet with extensive landscaping, significant exterior lighting, and the possibility of additional buildings on site.


Temple Announcement

On October 2, 2022, President Russell M. Nelson announced plans to construct the Lone Mountain Nevada Temple at the October 2022 General Conference. Lone Mountain is on the northwest side of the Las Vegas metropolitan area. Nearly 6% of Nevada’s population are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. There are about 180,000 Latter-day Saints in more than 360 congregations in the state. The temple will be the state’s fourth. The Las Vegas Nevada Temple was dedicated in 1989, and the Reno Nevada Temple was dedicated in 2000. Ground was broken for the Elko Nevada Temple in 2022 and was under construction at the time of the announcement. Shortly after Latter-day Saint pioneers arrived in the Western United States in the 1840s, they established a trading post near Carson City (now the state’s capital).1
